Nincompoop.Β Definition: A foolish or stupid person – or dog!

So who’s the Nincompoop?

Little Monkey of course!

This morning when I went outside to give treats to my dogs, Little Monkey was so excited, she jumped up in the air with all four feet off the ground. This is usual.

Mr Spaghetti Legs, who was trying to get out of the way of her and the door, turned sideways.

Unfortunately, he ended up squarely under LM as she landed back down!

So now SL was under LM; as you can see from the *illustration below.

LM and SL Drawing

Yes, SL is smaller than LM, but not that small. He didn’t quite fit: at all!

His little spaghetti legs gave way under her weight, as he dragged himself out from under her.


I looked at LM and said, “OMG LM! You Idiot! How on earth do you still have your face?”

Any other dog would have reacted and snapped at LM; even bitten her.

Not old Mr Spaghetti Legs; who puts up with all her nonsense, with a quiet dignity.

This is why the old boy is priceless.

This is why LM chose him two and a half years ago.


* What do you mean, my drawing is child-like? I’ll have you know, kids used to queue up at school to have me draw pictures of horses for them.

Yes, I was only eight years old, but my drawings were pretty darn good.

Fair enough! My drawing skills have not improved since then!

      haha Well thank you kindly! πŸ™‚ I would have drawn stick figures – but you really can’t show the angles then.
      Still, I won’t give up my day job! πŸ˜€

      LM absolutely does not respect SL – or his space! But they are a mini pack and support each other when needed. πŸ™‚

    Well, some dogs just have to much excitement built in their bodies and they often get too entergetic. I think your drawing is quite nice myself – no one should make fun of anything another person does – talent shows itself in different ways.

      Thank you πŸ™‚ LM can’t help herself – even tho she is getting older! She will always be a bouncy dog, that I use my energy in calming!
      Agh, I’m not an artist, and that is OK with me πŸ™‚
